Patton Oswalt has talked openly about how difficult life has been since his wife, Michelle McNamara, died in April 2016, but the comedian has found love again.

Oswalt’s publicist confirmed Thursday that he is engaged to actress Meredith Salenger.

Salenger tweeted her love for both the comedian and his daughter.

Oswalt cracked a “Star Wars” joke on Twitter and said, “I put the ring in a marzipan Slave I replica and said, ‘Will you be my Padawan of Love?’ She maced me but said yes later.”

It’s certainly a happy development for Oswalt, who spoke to “48 Hours” in April of the heartbreak he faced after McNamara died.

Oswalt told Tracy Smith on “48 Hours” that McNamara’s quest to find the “Golden State Killer” took a toll on her health.
